Here’s one I should have posted long ago. It was apparently made in 2006 but managed to slip under my radar until about a year ago. This is probably the best one out there on the whole Transhumanism / AGI type dimension, but I don’t think its too popular amongst their movement with it being the only one I can think of that is balanced and shows both sides of the coin. I did add it the other day to the new “Films to Watch” section in the left panel, but decided to underscore this great film here.

Be sure to check out the parts where the Life Extension advocate screams that you’ll have to kill him in order to stop him from becoming a god.

Film comes in 3 one hour parts:

TechnoCalyps – Part I – TransHuman

TechnoCalyps – Part II – Preparing for the Singularity

TechnoCalyps – Part III – The Digital Messiah

I saw a lot of Christians standing on street corners screaming,but that man did not scream. He was very adamant though that the people who don’t want to be a part of this have no right to bar others like myself from attaining it.

  2. This film promotes misinformation and flawed logic to the highest degree. It reduces a range of interesting topics to an artificial controversy between the “mad scientists” and the tech-no “skeptics”. The parts that could be interesting to watch from a scientific point of view are rendered useless by the unscientific use of language, unclear use of concepts and generally hysterical fearmongering of the worst kind. Please make sure you smoke up before you watch this movie. That way you will enjoy it more and forget about it faster afterwards. Brrrrr.
